What are the functions of the S Pen when I connect my Note9 to a screen?

The Note9 S Pen can be used as a remote control due to its Bluetooth connection.


Connect your mobile device to an external screen, such as a monitor or TV, to use these functions. Learn how to connect your Note9 to a screen using DeX.
